Glasgow-based Gaia-Wind (www.gaia-wind.com), a manufacturer of high-performance small wind turbines, has gone into provisional liquidation, putting around 12 jobs at risk. The company opened its factory in 2011 and has produced nearly 2,000 turbines for customers in the UK, Europe, the USA and Japan. The Renewable UK trade association said that the Government’s failure to set out how it intends to deliver small-scale renewable energy in the future was a key factor in the failure of Gaia-Wind. It blamed the Government for cuts to the Feed-in Tariff, which supports small-scale renewables and is due to close to new applicants in April 2019.
